Director Ryder’s signature appears on the product insert, the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) and the product carton in each complete set, and each component has been numbered as well. The signed sets will be randomly distributed through the U.S. Mint’s fulfillment center as orders are packaged and shipped to customers.

The Proof Set is a flagship U.S. Mint product that is issued annually. It contains the Mint’s finest quality coins as they are struck multiple times using polished blanks and dies, resulting in frosted designs that contrast attractively against mirror-like backgrounds.

Released March 1 for $27.95, the Proof Set for 2019 has 10 clad coins with denominations ranging from the cent to dollar. Each coin is produced at the San Francisco Mint and carries an "S" mint mark.

As an added bonus, every set this year ships with a premium cent struck at the West Point Mint which carries a "W" mint mark. The one-cent coin is one of three special edition cents for 2019.

The bonus cent has helped in boosting sales of the set which reached 374,016 in 21 weeks. In contrast, it took nearly 32 weeks for last year’s set to hit the same level.
